No real workshop as such, too old to do that now, just a few tools stashed inside the home garage.
All my work is done in the driveway and on an outside work bench.

All the equipment I have stashed away is mobile, meaning it either has a rolling frame attached or I have put wheels on it, so I can roll it outside onto the driveway and around the garage.
Then at the end of the day (or if conditions turn nasty) everything is packed back up and stored round the car.

G’day mate, Nice to see the number of Aussies growing ;). Interesting Dust collector design and the point you made that you actually compost the wood chips. Have to visited the thought of handling non-compostable waste?

Hello John

Dust Collector:

Yeah I was impressed that the Lumberjocks Org would feature my simple separator.

John I have had an interest in recycling for a long time, I had a grey water recycling system installed at The Castle even before it was legal or recognised as not contaminating the soil.

If you are interested I can send you some info/photos of the systems I currently have in place.

Rain water harvesting in vertical columns attached to the house, worm farms, grey water system, composting wind power and a small off grid solar system, however these days solar power generation is a household item anyway.

Regards Robert Brennan
